Technology can help to check for traumatic brain injury

Brain injuries can easily happen due to a fall or a car accident in West Virginia, for example. Unfortunately, these types of injuries can have long-lasting impacts on one's quality of life. However, a brand-new device may make it possible to check for traumatic brain injury, including bleeds and concussions, in less than one hour.

Medical experts in another state are currently using this new technology, called Brainscope One. It features a headset that is disposable, which is linked to a smartphone. The patient essentially plays phone games that are centered on cognition to determine if there is any abnormal activity in the patient's brain.

The device is helpful for assessing patients for any kind of trauma to the head, as medical providers can examine the severity of a patient's brain injury. In addition, this technology has the potential to save patients money, as patients can visit urgent care centers rather than emergency rooms. This device is garnering attention because, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, traumatic brain injury contributes to around 30 percent of accidental deaths in the United States.

Those who have suffered traumatic brain injuries in West Virginia due to the carelessness of other individuals, such as negligent motorists, have the right to file personal injury claims for monetary damages. A preponderance of the evidence is required to establish liability in civil court. Once that is achieved, claims for damages be decided. A monetary award may help with covering medical bills and other losses associated with the traumatic brain injury.
